. the country has put rocket units on standby, saying they are willing to fire in the south pacific. kim jong-un says the north is ready to settle accounts with the u.s. imperialists. the announcements came after the u.s. flew a pair of nuclear-capable stealth bombers over south korean air space. deployed from a base in missouri, they practiced dropping bombs on a south korean range, nearly 6,500 miles away. defense secretary chuck hagel says the pentagon has not taken the regime's threats lightly. >> is north korea more dangerous today? i think they're very provocative actions and belligerent tone has ratcheted up the danger. and we have to understand that reality. >> on tuesday, kim jong-un threatened to fire on guam, hawaii, and the u.s. mainland. and has recently put ground troops and artillery on standby. and pyongyang even released a propaganda video earlier this month showing the u.s. capitol and white house under attack. >>> the situation in syria grows worse by the day. mortar shells fell on the ca cafeteria at damascus university killing at least 15 students and wounding at least 20 mo
nba star, dennis rodman, hung out with kim jong-un and claimed kim is an awesome kid who does not want to war. rodman was was there for a basketball camp. and there's one more, and for that we turn to jonathan hunt at the united nations. looks like basketball diplomacy works as well as sanctions. now the united nations is hammering out a draft resolution to deal with north korea. >> cording to the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., this draft resolution would impose some of the toughest financial punishment ever handed don by the united nations. listen. >> for the first time ever, this resolution targets the elicit activities of north korean diplomatic personnel. north korean banking relationships. illicit transfers of bulk cash and new travel restrictions. >> what this draft resolution says immiss setly, rather than explicitly, is that north korean officials are taking advantage of diplomatic immunity to smuggle in and out of the country both nuclear technology and large amounts of cash, and the clear aim of this resolution is to put an end to that kind of illegal, under international law,
ever to meet north korea's secretive leader kim jong-un. not talking about some ambassador, not talking about the secretary of state. we're talking about a tatted up, likes to, you know, wear wedding gowns, known as the worm, dennis rodman, probably the most eccentric guy to ever slam dunk a basketball in the nba is now the reigning american expert, i use this term expert very loosely and facetiously here, you know, on the leader of the country who has openly threatened to destroy the united states. this is what rodman had to say about his new friend, kim jong-un. >> his country likes him, not like him, love him. love him. guess what, yeah, yeah, i love him. i love him. the guy is awesome. >> yeah. he said it, the guy is awesome. that's not all. rodman says even though kim jong-un may hate america, he loves basketball, he's over there with the harlem globetrotters. rodman thinks a little basketball diplomacy could fix the rocky relationship between the two countries. >> the one thing i said, we talked about -- you see the clips or whatever, he loves basketball. obama loves basketball. l
korea. take a look at this photo with me. here he is, the leader of north korean leader kim jong-un meeting with military leaders today. here he is, sorting through documents. but you'll see in a moment, there is a map behind him. see that over his left shoulder. lines drawn to places like hawaii, places like california, and what's more is this. yet another piece of propaganda video, shows animation of north korean missiles destroying u.s. bomber planes. this comes just a day after the united states sent b-2 stealth bombers over south korea for military drills, a move that north korea says is a threat of quote/unquote nuclear war. bev within reporting, getting and hearing this growing rhetoric from north korea in recent weeks, the nation calling the u.s. warmongers and imperialists. u.s. officials, they say they are concerned. >> i think they're very provocative actions. and belligerent tone has ratcheted up the danger. and we have to understand that reality. >> so chris lawrence for us at the pentagon. chris, i want a reality check. how serious now is the u.s. taking this threat th

[chanting] that i'm told translates to death to america. echo reports north korean state television which quoted the dictator as saying his missiles are ready to settle accounts with the united states. he also reportedly signed orders placing his military forces on stand by. all of this comes one day after american stealth bombers flew over south korea, dropping dummy bombs as part of a training exercise. and as a reminder of the overwhelming peter of the u.s. military. obviously little kim, kim the younger has to know that launching rockets at the united states would be suicide. but the concern is that he might have no choice. ju
up. victor, alison? >> jim, we saw the photographs just a few seconds ago of kim jong-un with four generals behind him and the map in the background talks about targets in the u.s. what is the likelihood that kim jong-un and his army could pull that off? >> in a word, zero. they cannot hit the u.s. mainland with what they have now. if they were to launch that missile that they put up to put a satellite in orbit, they'd have to leave it on the launch pad probably ten days as they fueled it up. they simply don't have the capability, they're too vulnerable, but they do have medium and long-range missiles with a range of about 1,300 miles the longest ones and that does put guam and japan within range, those missiles work and there are concerns over that, the concerns are over the more low level things they could do, the cyber attacks like we saw in the banks, the incident like the "cheonan" that was lost in 2010, those are things that south korea and the u.s. are keeping a close eye on tonight. >> jim clancy in seoul, south korea, for us, thank you. >>> we've got much more ahead this h

with south korea, they are cautious about what kim jong-un means about that exactly. here is nbc's ian williams from south korea. >> reporter: craig, not only did north korea declare a state of war, it says it will now deal with south korea according to war-time regulations. it's not clear what that means since this peninsula has been in a technical state of war for 60 years. officials here in seoul dismiss the claims and a rally where tens and thousands turned out shouting death to the u.s. imperialists. he's already scrapped the korean war and cut lines. kim has ordered his missiles on stand by to strike the u.s., guam, even hawaii. experts doubt he has the ability to hit u.s. targets and thinks it would be pretty suicidal to try. they believe a full-scale conflict is extremely unlikely but they do worry about a more localized provocation, perhaps around yellow waters where the north has been holding exercises. there have been several clashes there in recent years and when i visited, i found the most vulnerable island ten miles of the north on a high state of alert. they fear he may
of north korea, kim jong-un, if you're watching this, that doesn't get our attention, threatening us. you have to do something to makes us focus on you like date a kardashian or punch justin bieber. that will get a lot of attention. we follow pop culture more than this stuff. nobody feels north korea is a threat. it's really an empty threat to us. at the same time, the u.n. is considering more sanctions, just voted for more sanctions and he's threatening us to show he's a responsible leader. he's not. i don't think anyone's paying attention. that's the reality. >> did i just see a kardashian -- >> date a kardashian. >> talking about pop culture, i think one of the most interesting pop culture stories this week and the biggest was my friend and yours joy behar leaving "the view." she's been there since the beginning, 16 years. that's one of the biggest jobses in show business in talk and she's deciding to leave. and she's a comedienne and probably is going back to do just that. >> i got on "the view" twice. it was because of joy. she saw he perform in a new york comedy club. i think she's
